We’re excited to invite you to a special St. John’s Pilgrimage to the Holy Land, March 1-11, 2021.
Journey into the stories of our faith, walking where Jesus walked, boating along the Sea of Galilee, quietly sitting where crowds listened to Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount. The itinerary is outlined in this brochure, but you’ll be amazed at how the story of faith will come alive in new and exciting ways.
Through our unique partnerships with Christmas Lutheran Church and Dar al Kalima Lutheran University, we’ll have access to a deeper part of the story and the chance to form relationships that could last a lifetime. We’ll also encounter some of the “living stones” that make up daily life in Palestine. Time will be spent with Jewish, Muslim, and Christian residents to consider life under occupation, enjoying conversation that goes far beyond the average nightly newscast. And an optional extension trip to Petra is available for those.
There will be many highlights of the pilgrimage, but we’re sure food will be near the top of the list, especially while we’re in Bethlehem enjoying meals prepared by Chef Bassem Hazboun. Bassem was the lead chef at the 2014 St. John’s culinary event.
